Abhita Austin


With 20 years of experience, producer-audio engineer Abhita Austin serves as a unique talent to the recording industry. Alumna of New York University’s Music Technology program, Abhita began her career in the late '90s in NYC recording studios. There she developed her music production skills while working with artists such as Christina Aguilera, Missy Elliot, Common, and R&B legend Roy Ayers.

By the start of the millennium, Abhita was recording chart-topping artists like Anthony Hamilton, Craig David, and Grammy Award winning gospel artist Donny McClurkin. In 2015, Abhita served as the lead composer for the independent short film, Finding Chris Brown (An official selection of the 19th HBO Urbanworld Film Festival). She has also provided music production work for companies such as Univision Communications and the National Association For Community College Entrepreneurship (NACCE).

Moved by the underrepresentation of women in music technology, over the past three years, Abhita has worked diligently to create opportunities for women creatives to become more visible. In 2018, she founded The Creator’s Suite, a platform for women in music production. As Creative Director, Abhita collaborates with brands to program workshops, masterclasses, and networking meet-ups for women DJs, producers, and audio engineers.
